EO:
Y'all. Crypto has come to digital art in the form of non-fungible tokens. To my understanding, it's a way to instantiate your art so that there is a traceable, trackable original that can be sold as an original. It doesn't prevent copies, but in-demand artists are already profiting. It's not limited to art but I wanted to hear you guys thoughts. Could it address any of the problems with selling stock? Is it a flash in the pan?

Didn't follow your link but did happen upon an article in the Verge on the same subject

Not really sure how it relates to stock licensing, but possibly this might be interesting for people looking for a side hustle to boost income if stock royalties are down from years past. As always, the real trick is finding buyers; second consideration, avoiding all the administrative & financial hassle so one can spend more time making things to license.

I signed up earlier today. I heard they are very selective. They only seem to accept artists with a strong presence in social media... and I don't have a strong presence in social media. We'll see what happens.

This is a general trend last years. Not the main subject is the main criteria, but what is around. In the world out of the artists environment a social profile (not social media presence of course, but everything what 'cannot' be updated by a person) is more important than skills.

Right now on most of these marketplaces, there is some sort of "listing" fee. So it would be an upfront investment just to get there with no guarantee that you would sell anything. If you already got a lot of followers it might work.
